Video: Working with pins

There may come a time as you continue to use the Pinterest mobile app that you feel the need to edit a pin that you've added to your profile or even delete a pin entirely from your account. That's actually really easy to do. All you have to do is navigate to the Profile section of your Pinterest account and then tap of the board that has the pin you want to edit. Once you find the pin on the board that you want to edit, just tap on that pin and it loads it up in a single view like this. And you can tap on the Edit button. Tapping the Edit button allows you to change both the title, the board, and also allows you to delete the pin.

Working with pins

There may come a time as you continue to use the Pinterest mobile app that you feel the need to edit a pin that you've added to your profile or even delete a pin entirely from your account. That's actually really easy to do. All you have to do is navigate to the Profile section of your Pinterest account and then tap of the board that has the pin you want to edit. Once you find the pin on the board that you want to edit, just tap on that pin and it loads it up in a single view like this. And you can tap on the Edit button. Tapping the Edit button allows you to change both the title, the board, and also allows you to delete the pin.

If you choose Delete Pin, you'll get a confirmation message asking you if you're sure that you want to permanently delete this pin. If you're sure, tap Delete. If not, tap Cancel. If you choose Delete, that pin is gone. You'll have to repin it in order for it to show up ever again in your account. From here, you can tap Save to save any changes that you made or tap Cancel to get back out. You also have the ability while you're editing this pin to tap on this button right here. That's going to allow you to share this pin on Twitter, Facebook, or even save it to your Camera Roll or send it to someone as an email.

You can tap Cancel to get out of there, and it takes you right back. If you pull down on the screen, you will be able to see the Back button, and you can tap on that and return back to wherever it was that you were before inside of the Pinterest app. In this case, I've navigate back to my profile, just like so. Again, if you want to edit a pin, just navigate to the board, select the pin, and then to make changes to it, tap on the Edit button and you can change anything about it or even get rid of it using the Delete command. This is just one more way that the Pinterest mobile app gives you full control over everything inside of your Pinterest account, no matter where you happen to be.
